BEIT RUTH GALA DINNER
The Jaffa Institute hosted its first annual Beit Ruth gala dinner in New York on 20 June, 2012
Senator John McCain, together with other esteemed guests – Dr. Michael B. Oren and Sally Oren, gathered at the Grand Hyatt Hotel to honor Susan M. Ashner, the founder of Beit Ruth.
Thanks to Susan Ashner’s generosity and dedication, in 2006, the Jaffa Institute established the Beit Ruth Hostel for at-risk girls, which can accommodate 13 teenagers in Rishon LeZion, Israel.
Susan Ashner’s contribution and involvement in this project enabled the Jaffa Institute to extend its work towards the protection of at-risk young women. As the Beit Ruth Hostel has been very successful, and since the need for the Hostel vastly exceeds our present capacity to serve, we are currently building the Beit Ruth Educational Village where over 200 girls will be given refuge and the opportunity to rehabilitate.
The Beit Ruth Educational Village will be established on a 100,000 square foot plot (16 dunams) of land near the city of Afula. The Beit Ruth Educational Village will be a safe haven for teenage girls who struggle to develop socially, academically, and emotionally. This place will provide them with therapeutic, rehabilitating, social, recreational, and educational enrichment programs all while nurturing their personal sense of self-esteem and self belief.
When completed, the Beit Ruth Educational Village will eventually serve over 200 disadvantaged girls and young women between the ages of 14 and 24.
